POLITICS AS CELEBRITY

I knew this crap was coming sooner or later. People are suffering & these mafuckas out here doing sorority photo shoots. Miss me w/ this bullshit. More of the same. Stop treating politics like its a damn elite club & path 2 celebrity
washingtonpost.com/nation/2021/01…
Stop playing games w/people's lives & maybe then you wouldn't have so many people suffering. I'm going to file this bullshit next to Michelle Obama's $8,000 Versace dress & $4,000 Balenciaga boots. This shit is sickening.

glamour.com/story/michelle…
Remember when Barack Obama 1st ran for president & Mrs. Obama was heralded as "The J. Crew" 1st Lady who shopped at Target was just like every other American? That bullshit was a lie. Balenciaga & Versace Michelle is who she always was, but she masked it 2 aid her husband's rise.
Now Kamala Harris, like Michelle Obama, out here w/a Marie Antoinette "let them eat cake" tone deafness while Americans are suffering, the Capitol is burning , a pandemic is raging, people are dying & a civil war is brewing, but Kamala skee-weeing on Vogue covers in pink & green-
like she back on the yard at Howard about to do her probate show. Meanwhile, the Obamas globetrotting w/billionaires, gotta half Bil Netflix deal & hv mansions in Chicago, DC & Marthas Vineyard. Nevermind how they got this entire life of wealth & celebrity was through politics &
off the backs of hard working black people (& whites). There is something very perverse about all this & we wonder why all these people turned 2 Trump. This is why Sen. Elizabeth Warren told a group of HBCU students that "Obama was more of a friend 2 Wall Street than Main Street"
So now the Obamas get a fairytale life while the people who supported them most got nothing but lectures. Put simply, Negroes are the shoes every1 else wears 2 a better life. That same phenomenon is now repeating itself w/Kamala Harris. She'll get Vogue covers while black people-
get police bullets & body bags. In America, our constant creation of celebrity serves the same function as the monarchy serves in Great Britain. We create a group of people to worship. It is almost as if celebrity functions as a type of anesthesia to the painful lives we live.
Politics is not the noble profession its practitioners claim it to be. It's an American Idol popularity contest masquerading as public service. It's the reason we have a reality show president, the reason a talk show host like Oprah can launch the Obamas to stardom & the reason-
we painted the Kennedys as Camelot. It's all celebrity worship AND IT'S KILLING THE FUCKING COUNTRY. Fuck Vogue and it's racist as history. It's troublesome for an American VP-elect to think its ok to be on such a magazine cover & I don't give shit if-

theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
the photographer was black. Putting a black face on white supremacy ain't nothing new. People are suffering in this country & the last thing we need is a Vice fucking President searching for fashion cameras like Barry Obama searching 4 a fake ass glass of Flint water 2 drink.

DEAD RIGHT

Hear me. I read everything. And I do mean EVERYTHING. On my shelf sits the books of men & women & love & despise. Once the ideas of another permeates my cognitive scope, I argue with them for eternity. I digest point & counterpoint w/breathtaking precision.
I am of the perspective that no idea should go unchallenged & all ideas should be thoroughly interrogated. To that end, a Jewish friend sent me an edited copy of Mein Kampf ("My Struggle") by Adolf Hitler. This was 1 of the 1st annotated versions released after Germany ended its-
-70 year ban on the book. From the outset, in the foreword, the editor says, "never again should a monster of this ilk be allowed 2 rise . If Hitler's countrymen had actually took the time 2 read his ideas at the time this book was published, he would have never rose to power."

R.A.F.

Lemme say something-from here on out, whenever U read an article from a major newspaper or watch anything from any public figure in any position, try 2 look up their bio & background. If U cant find anything on them, U should automatically become deeply suspicious
I actually once outed a well known professor for being a fraud. All this started with his British professor colleague joking in class how he loved America b/c most Americans thought he was so brilliant just b/c he had a British accent. He told the class how back home-
he was nothing, but he was given some advice by another British friend that in America he could thrive because they would find him exotic & different. So he left Britain & came to America climbing all the way to the top of the Ivy League. While overseas, I actually ran n2 a Brit-

MORNING BANTER

Most people could not handle being around me & my wife due to our ruthless banter. In my wife, I found my match. At 1st glance, my wife seems like a sweet choir girl who reads the bible all day, but she can play the dozens w/the best of them & takes no prisoners.
Ive said many times b4, like comedian Flip Wilson said, "When I met my wife she had a Sunday School face & I had Saturday Night thoughts." I was a frat boy running around campus half naked & she was an honor roll student athlete seduced by a bad boy who partied more than studied.
Many mouths drop at the shit I say in stand up, in speeches, articles & on social media, but if y'all could hear da shit my wife says to me, U would be on the floor howling. Supersensitive mafuckas cant crack our door seal. My wife don't give a fuck about my feelings & I LOVE IT.

All bullshit aside. Real talk my nigga. Warnock & Ossof need secret service asap & Joemala need not be seen in public until after Jan 20th. How low can America go? As I type this some1 has already done the political calculus that GA's Repub. governor can appoint senators should-
something mysteriously happen to Warnock & Ossof. Ive been predicting this 4 some time. The Donald is about 2 remind America once again who she really is. Trumpmasterflash has found the loopholes in our republic & will exploit every 1 to the very end. This was all orchestrated.
The end game is nigh & Thanos is just about ready to snap his finger. Attention all Negroes. I repeat. Attention all Negroes. This is a public service announcement. Stay yo ass in da house. Dis white folks fight. Ain't no since of no mo niggas dying fo white folk shit.

KILLMONGER'S DIARY

Fuck Africa. I'm American. Any African mad at dem words, kick rocks. Don't like it, jump ship. Back 2 Africa. Need receipts. How much yall made off us? U think we didn't know? Mafucka, we the vibranium that made Africa pop. We werent stole. We were sold.
Yall sold us. Then yall hv the audacity 2 come here, pass as American niggas, lecture us about racism & white supremacy, police our emotion, critique our anger & then U have the bravado 2 lecture us about fighting when yall let Europeans come & take yall shit? Fuck out of here.
Immigrants by nature unpatriotic. When times got tough, you left your country. You abdicated the responsibility to make your country better. You didn't fight. You ran. We didn't leave. We stayed. We fighters. Yall runners. Ain't know runner can tell a fighter about a damn thing.
